Pitot help

Looking for the preferred pitot replacement brand. I read about one here before but can't remember the brand. Speds or something like that maybe?? Pitot looked different. Think it was a pass through style. Help!

Skidims

SKIDIMS was the one I was thinking of. Any opinions on that venturi style pickup before I invest in them?

They work great on my boat, but they still get weeded-up once in a while.

Have the ones from Skidim on my PS200. Work very well, sturdy build but do catch weeds at times.

Please note that the screw holes do not match up with all three original ones.

I use the Skidim pitots as well....I've had no problems with these at all. Although we don't have many weeds in Lake Tuscaloosa.
